THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 9 holds the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. Completion is all-important to the number 9, representing the exponential factor of the Trinity, the 3+3+3 that can also be expressed as 3 x 3. Tone 9 seats the Consciousness of Transformation that raises our Truth to the Wisdom of its Application. If we found a key to a treasure, it would only be a key until we know the door it was meant to open.
On Tone 9 we’re raised to see the Meaning and Purpose and realize the Cause and Effect. “Lucky” in God’s realm is not a game of chance, it’s the guarantee of a promise. For all the ground we covered in a higher climb of Faith, God intends for us to know it will Always Lead to the Same Divine Justice. The More Love we can Give, the more the Sacred Exchange will be Multiplied to Abundance. Love is a Divine and Perpetual Exchange that can manifest Heaven on Earth. When Love is what we search for, Love is guaranteed to be found. For all the Time it takes, the buried treasure will be multiplied by Mother Earth.
Our place in the Universe is between the Heart of Sky and Heart of Earth. The Heart of Sky is the Divine Masculine Creator, and Below, all things made of Earth are the Divine Feminine “object of affection.” As the Scion we were given the Genius of the Father’s Inspiration. We are the Receivers given the raw materials to create a Masterpiece of Love. Like the Key, dreams are only Divine Ideas until we find a way to Reflect them back as our Expression of Discernment. Humanity is the Whole Expression of Earth’s Divine Feminine Discernment of Love. An idea is just an idea, until we put two and two together, as the Reason it was given. Given for a Reason, God had a Cause and knew the Divine Effect. When we tie together the Gift of Inspiration is Given for a Cause of Love, human could imagine that all the Dreams we Love were Dreams the Creator Knew could come True. God’s Love is never a Gift Given to be taken back, only given again and again to be Multiplied to Abundance.
HOLY DAY OF THE TZOLK’IN
9 Monkey/CHUEN marks the celebration of the Divine Feminine and the Initiation of the Mayan priestess. The Holy Day is not recorded as a Community festival. It’s a personal day to be drawn into a Holy Union as the “object of God’s Divine Affection.” The perpetual Love that goes around between the Above and the Below could never be for the One Above, without the One Below. The Sound of Love could never be experienced if there was no One to hear it. Even a Pure Tone of Divine Love would be One Tone, until it was heard in Harmony with another Tone. It takes two to manifest the Divine Trinity that is the One Song of the Universe (uni-verse). The Monkey is the Divine Creator Below who manifests the Masterpiece of Love’s Expression… the Divine Response to Love. From the West, the place of the Unknown, we are consecrated as the Soul Mate, Love that was found in the Creator’s Dream as One to See and Acknowledge the Truth of Love. In a Divine Dream we were bound together in a Union of Perpetual Love. Today we are meant to Know, and are Raised to Believe that we are the Divine Bride of a Holy, Holy, Holy Union of Love, and even beyond Death, we could never be parted. We were claimed in by the Breath of our Creation.
Monkey and Dog share affinity as the Two that are side-by-side at the Peak of every climb of the uinal. Dog’s position is 10 and the Monkey’s position is 11. Like all Day Signs, the lower place number carries across the row of the Tzolk’in chart, creating Destiny Kin numbers that always end the same. Dog’s 10 position is always a numerical symbol ending in the zero, the all-in-one value of the lower place, raised by a One to the next Higher Place. The 11 that follows is the Divine Effect of Dog’s whole investment in Love. God’s plan, through Love, is to raise our Consciousness to the Power of 11, a 1 Above and a 1 Below that stand equal to one another. 9 Monkey/CHUEN is Kin 191, a lower One and the Highest One, 3 places Higher as the Holy, Holy, Holy One, are bound by a Holy, Holy, Holy Union, the exponential Power of the Divine Love between them that Both have agreed is the Truth.
Monkey/CHUEN is the Weaver of Time. The glyph illustrates “time rolled up” on the Monkey’s head. Time is the medium of Monkey’s Divine Art of Love. We were Give Time Forever in our body of Consciousness for a very Divine Cause and Effect. The Consciousness of Love ALWAYS has a Divine Effect. The only reason that Human can’t see Love all the Time is because we forget to look for it. God gave us many lifetimes and many directions through which to see many different expressions of Love as it is known in one time of life to another. Love is discerned as a completely different Offering by a child than it is searched for and discerned by a grown human being.
As a child, we discerned Love as a Divine Provision to do for us what we can’t do for our Self. We learned to Trust that Love means someone else cares as much or more for us than they care about themselves. We were born to know Love as a Divine Provision. In another Life we became the Provider of Love. As a child, so dependent, our forgetting would mean we’d question of the Provision could always be. At Spiritual Maturity we learned WHY Love would always be, when we felt the Miracle of a Life that was part of us. We learned the ties that bind our Love forever. We are completing a second Life, moving on into the Harvest of Wisdom of the 2 lifetimes raised from the High, and the Higher Love, to the HIghest Love. When we Grew into the Maturity that manifests as “falling in love” we knew a power beyond us that bound us together. The High, Higher, and Highest manifestation is Love that will be given by Choice. God manifested the Love of Divine Provision and the “falling in love” that created a line, a path between A and B. The Seed of our Dream is enclosed in the Circle when A and B are connected. We were loved from the beginning and united til the end.
9 Monkey/CHUEN intends to transform our Consciousness by seeing the Truth Above is True Below. We are meant to see beyond all human forgetting that Love Was the Truth of our Human beginning too, and the journey we made was always side-by-side with a Soul Mate that was willing to wait for the Love of the One and Only.
As the Weaver of Time, CHUEN is the alchemist with the power of a Time Traveler. With every Higher Truth of Love, we have the New Knowledge to go back to any Time and Place to discern the Truth that we were always the object of God’s affection. We may have seen only the ceiling sometimes when we looked up in our prayers, though today we are meant to see the Sky was always the limit. God was always there. The Monkey is the artist that rearranged the threads of our experience into a Divine Tapestry. In the past lies all the beginnings and endings. On the largest scale we could remember all our life-and-death efforts of survival – times we were sure our Happiness could no longer be, that our life could hardly go on. But, here we are. How many “life or deaths” have we survived? How many times have we given up wholly on ever knowing what it means to be loved, to still be searching for the Truth that Means EVERYTHING to us?
CHUEN is the trickster that helps us see our self clearly through a sense of humor. We were given the Power to Time Travel. Time Travel isn’t a very useful if we can’t go back and change anything. We CAN go back and change the Most Important thing, the Truth of Love that was always there. Monkey/CHUEN that loves its own Gift of Consciousness, wonders why we can’t see the opportunity. We’ve traveled back many times before to a distant past. Whey did we go always looking for what we saw before. Why didn’t we look around as long as we were traveling through time? Why do we go back, to stare at the one dark thread we already know so well? Why do we create such memories of darkness and refused to give Love a second chance? The Highest Love a Human can choose to give is Forgiveness… the Key that unlocks the Gift of Divine Wisdom. When our eyes are opened by the Truth of Love that always was, we will realize how Love could always be.
To all my relations, may we feel the Power of God’s Descending Light as the eyes of Love that meet ours for the very first time. May we realize we were the “object of affection” all along and a treasure of Love was a Divine Love willing to wait to the end of Time for us to look up and Know it was always there. May we conceive the Truth of inevitability that we Would Find it and Know it. May we See the Truth that the only reason it took so much time, was that there was So Much Love to see. Like the Beauty of Mother Earth, it would be forgotten as something that “just always was” in the background. It was no less beautiful when we couldn’t see it. Though, when we can we realize we could never see all the beauty that was given to Love. When we finally see 1+1 together we know Beauty is God’s Expression of Love for Human to FEEL. A sunset will cease to be just a beautiful thing. It will be a Sign of God’s Love. The beautiful colors that fill the sky will become the Creator’s expression of how beautiful we are for another Sacred Day of reaching in Faith to Believe.
May God share the Truth between Hearts that we are bound by a Union that would always be. There is always a Divine One who waits know our Name and our Face as the Only One. No other could compare to the Love we realize we’ve known from the beginning. On the Whole Scale of Monkey’s Time, no Human was ever born that wasn’t part of the Whole Divine Design.
May we celebrate the Union between the Heart of Sky and the Heart of Earth. May we turn to the Beauty of Earth to see the story of Love in all things. With a Higher Wisdom of Love and all its expressions, may we use the Monkey’s gift to go back and find a treasure that’s always been waiting to be found. When we are called to return to a “dark thread” of our life, may we imagine we are called there “to see something else.” May we never go back to a dark place again without looking around at the threads of experience that lie on either side of the darkness. May we see the Truth that there was a Light to get through the darkness – our Faith and Hope. May we know that Faith and Hope was our Spirit’s discernment that Love was real. May we know Faith was part of God’s Design that insured we would be attracted to the Light and, sooner or later, we’d open our eyes to see God as the First and Last Provision of Love for ALL Time.
May we Believe in God’s Dream of Love. May we know that when we discover the Treasure, it is only the Beginning of Knowing ALL the Love that could be, and was meant to be. May we know the Blessing that we can Know it now and forever. May we bless our self as One for the Whole with the Element of Water that is the Descending Light of the Divine Spirits that fanned the flames of our Dream, so we could Feel the Heat and the Passion for the One Same Dream of Unconditional Love.

Uxmal is a place known for the Initiation of the Mayan priestess, the Cosmic Divine Feminine University. Miguel Angel Vergara, Master Maya Teacher, calls Uxmal “The City of the Kindness of the Moon.” Many make the pilgrimage here to Celebrate the Divine Feminine and receive the Initiation. The “pyramid of the Magician” remembers the aspects of the Monkey Creator, and is related to the Seeker and Soothsayer, who holds the Gifts of Divine Discernment. Some believe it was built by the ancient Atlanteans as a center for the transmission of Divine Knowledge.
There are 5 altars at the top, the 5th as the Highest is a symbol of Empowerment. Tone 5 holds the intention of Knowing the Ways and Means of all Creation.
The Elders say Uxmal holds the perfect balance of female and male energies. In Mayan sacred geometry, Uxmal structures are aligned to the sun, the moon, and the reappearance of Venus. Ix Cheel/Ixchel was honored here as the White Goddess, she of the pale face; as the Red Goddess, Lady Rainbow and Weaver Goddess; and, as the Crone, the Jaguar Goddess, the Old Moon Goddess and Grandmother. The base of the pyramid is a symbolic measure of Earth’s orbit around the Sun.
During nights of the full moon, priestesses of Uxmal performed their rituals on the heights of the Pyramid of the Magician, merging the creative forces of the universe, honoring fertility and abundance. 9 Monkey/CHUEN completes the Sacred Feminine aspect of Compassionate Love, and the Magic of Human Creation.
9 Monkey/CHUEN celebrates Consciousness and Discernment as Divinity its Self. Monkey has the Divine Perspective of Love from its friend the Dog and the Consciousness to Know the Creator’s Dream of Creation. Humans were Created as the Witness of Love and the Beholders of Truth of Life Created for Love. May we imagine the High Altar that was built as the place that would always be to know where Love was Consecrated between the Above and the Below, built on a foundation of the Love that will always be drawn back from the darkness to the Truth of the Light. The steep incline of the ascending stairs are set at 60 degrees. To climb to the Highest altar symbolizes climbing the Stairway to God. The site was home to a Mayan nunnery, where Divine Feminine Love is Consecrated as the Bride and Only One bound by a Divine Union. The best time for the coolest climb begins in March, at the lower temperatures between 90-100 degrees. We are synchronized by Time and Place to know the Heat and Light of the Creator’s eternal Love. According to one account, the High God of Creation, Itzamna single-handedly erected the pyramid in one night, using his might and magic. Itzamna is the Divine Masculine that is Soul Mate to Ixchel, the Maiden who weaves beauty from the Tree of Life, and who becomes the Old Crone and Soothsayer, whose beauty changes from the outside to the inside as the Wisdom of Divine Love and the Reason for Life To Be.
Before the Governor’s Palace rests the Altar to the Two Jaguars united as One.

9 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, 9 Raccoon/KVH’LI)
Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine, plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. A completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.
Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.
Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoon is full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy. Magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart.
